Word Wrap Not Working in Infor CRM 8.1.x and Newer on IE 11

We have had a few recent customers complain the textboxes are not properly wrapping text when using Internet Explorer 11 to view the Infor CRM web client.  The issue does not appear to happen in IE 10.

Luckily there is a simple fix for this that fixes the IE wrap and does not impact other browser functionality.

The key is to modify 2 css files in the Infor CRM virtual file system.

Within both the layout.css and sage-style.css there is a style definition for textarea classes that looks like this

.textcontrol textarea,
.twocoltextcontrol textarea,
.threecoltextcontrol textarea
{
	overflow: auto;
}

This should be changed to

.textcontrol textarea,
.twocoltextcontrol textarea,
.threecoltextcontrol textarea
{
    /*overflow: auto;*/
    word-wrap:break-word !important;
    word-break:normal !important;    
    white-space: pre-wrap !important;
}

Please note there are several different definitions that are similar for textareas. You just want to change the one with the overflow: auto; definition.
